This Photo and Babe

This photo of our wedding days hangs in our living room - going on 5 years now.  (Sorry for the angle, I was trying avoid glare) 

Babe has looked at it and mentioned it a couple times.  
Just now he comes to me with tears in his eyes,   "Mommy, in the picture you were dressed up and you got married?  Why?"
ME "that's what you do when you love someone, grow up and get married have babies" 
Babe "but I don't want you to get dressed-up and get married.  You get married you don't come back"
ME "come back? I'm right here.  I married Daddy and had your brothers and you.  I didn't go anywhere"
Babe "mommy why?  If you get married you don't come back"

I repeated the same answer again.  

Babe "you came back?" 
ME "yes"
Babe "okay" and off he goes to play! 

I have zero clue what he meant by this conversation.  But he was so sincere and concerned.  Too sweet!
